While I was looking for something completly different in some old Int. Zoo Yearbooks, my eye felt on the holding of Flat-headed cats in zoos during 1987. Only one single male is listed at it and was kept at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. In a small note below it was said that the animals was a breeding loan from Gelsenkirchen Zoo ( at that time known as the Ruhr Zoo ) in Germany. Because I was only aware of 5 European collections which have had this species in their collection ( in Germany Frankfurt and Wuppertal, in the Netherlands Rotterdam and Wassenaar and in the UK London ) I checked Zootierliste but Gelsenkirchen is even not mentioned on this (original ) German database ! Because I've found the Int. Zoo Yearbook always quite relaible I would like to find out if the Ruhr Zoo Gelsenkirchen ever has had one or more Flat-headed cats, hope somebody can help !
